third address to the united nations general assembly. live coverage on line starting at 9:00 a.m. eastern time on c- span.org. the president is expected to address the middle east peace process. the president spoke yesterday on libya, touting it as a model of what the international community can achieve. that's where we will begin this morning, with your take on the role of the u.n. and world affairs. >> libya is a lesson in what the international community can achieve when we stand together as one. i said at the beginning of this process, we cannot and should not intervene every time there is injustice in the world, yet it is also true that there are problems where the world could have and should have summoned the will to prevent the killing of innocents on a horrific scale. we are forever haunted by the atrocities we did not prevent and the lives we did not save. this time was different. this time we, through the united nations, found the courage and the collective will to act. host: let me begin with the front page of "the washington times." they said this. host: let me show
obama's trip to new york next week to address the united nations general assembly. the palestinians want the u.n. to support their hopes to establish their own state. the u.s. does not back their desires. so-called arab spring in countries like libya and egypt put the white house and the state department in a very awkward position here. catherine herridge live in washington for us. where do things stand right now? >> reporter: well, thank you, jon and good morning. this potential showdown at the u.n. next week has been brewing for months and the stated position of hillary clinton and other members of the administration is that they do support statehood for the pa palestinians but through negotiation not through recognition alternate the united nations. a white house spokesman emphasized the point. >> the palestinians will not and cannot achieve statehood through a declaration at the united nations. it is a distraction and in fact it's counter procee counter productive. that remains our position. we continue to be focused with great intensity on the need to get israelis and palestinians t
on and the united nations general assembly and the security council will be talking about this over the next several days and weeks, but he can clearly claim a victory. what is going on right now is that the mideast quartet, the u.s., eu, russia and the united nations issued a framework, if you will for the eterms of negotiations of the israeli and the palestinians to get the palestinian president to backoff and start to negotiate with the israelis and the palestinians. >> what does this mean? >> well, it calls for clear time lines for the parties to get back to the table, and says that neither side could take provocative actions, and they don't say what that means really, but in essence it is tacit indication to israel not to build settlements, and settlement freeze while the negotiations are going on, and for the palestinians, they are urged to not take any moves into the international criminal court against israel should they go down the u.n. route and have a new legitimacy at the u.n. to do so. but in essence, brooke, it doesn't mean anything if the parties don't want to get back to the table. i

before. there's an important week coming up, the general assembly for the united nations. talk us through why next week is so important and why we should be focused on what's happening specifically with our ally israel. >> well, this is the week when all the heads of state and government come 20 a-- come to address the general assembly, president obama will speak on wednesday. it's going to be a bad week for israel. number one, we've got the so-called durbay-3 conference which will reamp the declaration reached in durbin, south africa that says israel is a racist state and therefore illegitimate and the palestinians apparently defying the obama administration's wish, they're going to press their resolution, whether in the general assembly or the security council to have palestine quote unquote declared a state and if they run there that through the general assembly they will prevail. so it's a lot of efforts at the political level, at the u.n., to isolate israel, to make life very difficult for it, combined with the strategic uncertainty militarily and politically in the region. i think i
bringing up a vote for statehood in the general assembly. we know the united states will block this, but the fallout. is there concern in the administration that the region could blow up, literally? >> there really is. and the concern is not only that the region could blow up. that is less of that. it's more of the position that this u.s. vote could put -- puts the united states in. because the last thing that the obama administration wants to do right now, in the middle of the air an spring, when they've been talking about the aspirations for all these, you know, the democratic aspirations throughout the arab world, is to be seen as if they're standing in the way and vetoing a vote that's directly to this democratic aspirations of the palestinian people. that's one of the reasons why they're trying so hard, even still, to stop this. at the risk of trying not to get too far into the weeds with this. but they still think that there's some wiggle room this week where they could maybe stop a vote from going to the security council, which is where the u.s. would have to veto it. >> all
application for a full membership in the united nations and our admission as an independent state. >> that palestinian request is vehemently opposed by israel and prime minister benjamin netanyahu told the general assembly that granting statehood now would be a statehood, not progress. >> israel is prepared to have a palestinian state in the west bank, but we're not prepared to have another gaza there. that's why we need to have real security arrangements which the palestinians simply refuse to negotiate with us. >> as that war of words played out, two dynamics worth noting. first, cheers for president abbas and celebrations as he made his case for statehood at the u.n. later, though, some clashes between palestinian youths near israeli checkpoints. you see them there in the west bank. also the so-called quartet, the united states, the united nations and russia, worked on a new proposal designed to get direct negotiations started again, they hope within four weeks. the goal is to have an agreement, a peace agreement, by the end of 2012 but the quartet's statement avoids the most d
, this is a historic day. last friday, the general assembly of the united nations overwhelmingly voted to accept the credentials of the new libyan leadership. today we are honored to formally recommend them into the international community and to the first major meeting at the united nations. president jalil, i am sure you saw your new flag this morning flying proudly outside this building. i am pleased to note -- is in this room as well. you and the people of libya, we offer our congratulations and best wishes for the future. for the past seven months, you have fought courageously for your fundamental rights and freedoms. women and young people were in the vanguard in the political and social and economic life of the country. as you look to the future, i want you to know that the united nations will support you in every way we can. excellencies, the security council and several regional organizations met the challenge with the speed and decisive action to protect the libyan people from violence. today we must once again respond with such speed and decisive action. this time, to consolidate peac
for statehood and that didn't work. then the administration tried to shift it to general assembly, that failed as well. this is this a double defeat for president obama's approach? >> it doesn't lood gook. a key bedrock component has been to breathe light into the united nations. you recall that when we went to war in libya, the administration did not seek approval from congress but did consult and seek approval from the united nations but this episode would seem again to illustrate the limitations of the u.n. does anybody think that palestinian authority would be durable peace between israel and palestinian or more of a symbol that the u.n. can't solve any of the international crisis that occur. >> gregg: how do you think the arab world would react to the u.s. veto? >> some of it is overstated. saudi official, they wrote it would imperil the special relationship between u.s. and saudi arabia. the fact is there is no special relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia. a lot of people around the world think if you solve israel you solve terrorism. think it's backwards. you have external for
